Art Deco Style Platinum Diamond & Natural Color-Changing Sapphire Ring 1.65ct
An exquisite and very rare gemstone ring in a traditional Art Deco era style! The handmade platinum mounting is a classic "step-up" design lined with sparkling diamonds at either shoulder. Delicate milgrain surrounds the bead set stones, which are a perfect compliment to the spectacular gemstone. Resting at the center is a brilliant/step cushion cut sapphire, which weighs 1.65 ct. and has no indications of heat treating. What makes the sapphire stone so extraordinary is its remarkable and natural color changing properties. The color of the sapphire changes noticeably when viewed under varying forms of light. In daylight, the color has a deep violet-blue color common to most sapphires. However, when viewed under incandescent light, the color changes dramatically to a strong shade of purple that closely resembles an amethyst. The sapphire stone was evaluated in August 2015 by GRS (Gem Research Swiss Lab) and comes with a full written report indicating its origin (Madagascar) and unique characteristics. The ring is stamped "PLAT" inside the shank alongside a small maker's hallmark. An outstanding piece, the ring looks stunning when worn and could make a stunning gemstone engagement ring!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size 8.5 of but could be easily resized.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the platinum setting and the sapphire stone and both diamonds are intact.
